Level:  Intermediate

In our environment, we have reference data that facilitates our claims processing, that has been in place for many years. There are industry standard code sets that have grown up around us, and these code sets grow and introduce new versions. In addition, there are standard data interchange formats such as HIPAA 837. Our enterprise has newly acknowledged the importance of code administration as a discipline. Reference data always brings with it the topic of governance. We have many stakeholders, and these codes are at the very heart of claims processing. This talk outlines our journey, how we are looking at integrating the proprietary and industry standard codes, supporting the systems of today at the same time transitioning to the systems of the future. The attendee will learn:
• Establishing Code Administration as a business discipline
• Transition strategies to industry standards
• Understanding stakeholders’ needs
